Best Practices Committee
Best Practices Committee Documents
Purpose: The Best Practices Committee (BPC) is established by the CIO Council Charter to serve as a focal point for promoting information management/information technology (IM/IT) best practices within the federal government. The BPC brings together a team of IT professionals committed to identifying the most successful of IM/IT practices being implemented in industry, government and academia; and sharing them with agency CIOs as best practices to be considered for emulation across the Federal government. It is about sharing the successes of others and not reinventing the wheel. It is about constantly learning and applying working models to reduce complexity and achieve results. It is also about cost avoidance and sound stewardship of the taxpayer's dollars.
Special Issue Seminars: In partnership with the American Council for Technology (ACT) the Federal CIO Council BPC sponsors a series of special seminars for Federal agency CIOs and their deputies. The seminars are opportunities for agency CIOs and their staffs to examine some of their most pressing IT issues in a not-for-attribution setting with leaders in the field. FY2004 topics included: IPv6, Electronic Records Management, Privacy and Enterprise Architecture. Upcoming seminars will be posted on the Federal CIO Council calendar of events.
CIO Boot Camp: The Federal CIO Council BPC offers an orientation for new Federal agency CIOs, Deputy CIOs, and CTOs. This two-day CIO Boot Camp provides new CIOs with insight and knowledge that can enhance their ability to achieve the missions and results of their agencies. CIOs, Deputy CIOs, and CTOs interested in enrolling or learning more about this orientation program will be alerted at an upcoming CIO Council meeting.
Meetings: Anyone wishing to participate in the BPC or to be added to the BPC membership list should contact the Coordinator below.
